I'm sure this has been covered thoroughly. Thanks!

For HDMI 2.0, 4:2:0 is only valid at 4K60. There is not any 4:2:0 format that can be sent over HDMI for 4K24. Even if you set 4:2:0 in the player it will convert 4K24 4:2:0 source content to either 4K24 4:2:2 or 4K24 4:4:4 before sending the output to a display. The 4:2:0 setting in players is typically there as a 4K60 option.

I'd strongly suggest getting a UB820 as it has tone mapping which is different to all other 4K players (except the more expensive UB9000). It will handle the HDR information so the projector doesn't have to and is something the RSx00 projectors significantly benefit from with the correct configuration.

Also, you'll probably need new HDMI cables.

My signature has links for everything I've mentioned.

Better yet - an htpc with madvr bests the ub820 in a big way. ive used both with my rs400 and madvr kills the 820.

I'm interested in that MadVR box that is supposedly being developed. I'm not interested in tweaking settings all the time. For me, SDR2020 conversion on the 820 is aces...it looks great and is stupid simple. If the eventual MadVR box has a "set it and forget it" option, I'll look into it.

I use the new version of madvr that does dynamic tone mapping. I really tweak nothing at all. I actually used your suggested settings with the ub820 (hoping for a brightness boost in hdr) and was surprised by the superiority of madvr. Tone mapping was similar but detail a big win for madvr.

Does anyone know when the Madvr box is due to come out ?

Apollo 11 documentary

Last night we watched the recently released Apollo 11 documentary. This was an unbelievable viewing experience and high recommendation for others to check it out. I have a large collection of documentaries and this one is in a league of it's own.

50% of the recently found 65mm footage has never been seen and the remaining footage has never looked this good. It has the classic 1960s Kodachrome look which is still awesome to see today.

No CGI, no unnecessary celebrity narration - 93 amazing minutes of of the entire mission from beginning to end.

What does MadVr display, visually, over the 820? I'm curious about Envy as well.

It is pretty incredible what previous generations have gone through and we all stand on the shoulders of these great heroes.

I shudder to think of what how my kid's generation could handle what the WW1 or WW2 generation went through. Frankly, they wouldn't stand a chance of winning such a war.

I liked the Norwegian original version - I'll skip the remake. Now I need to check out Apollo 11 !

The Envy is going to be mad expensive. But if you already have a PC with a current gen Nvidia card - Madvr is totally worth using for free.


Hard to explain how visually it bests the ub820. You just have to see for yourself.
